I have been using the ninja worrier 400 with 25' solution and vac hose for the past 4 years. Had no problems with it but really tired of lifting up and down stairs.Not in the best position to purchase a truck mount. My question is, is there any portable out there that can take 50'' to 75'' solution and vac hose without loosing psi or suction power?

any portable with dual 6.6 or 8.4 vacuum motors in parallel will get you cleaning at long lengths. 100 feet plus with one of those. If money is tight another option you might have is buy two 6.6 vacuum motors and upgrade your current portable. if you aren't real handy though then i would suggest just buy a portable already equipped with those high powered vacuum motors.

I owned like 3 of them. I ran 100' of hose no problem. Great suction. Prespray pump inside also
Rick, have you ever used the smaller models like the JR? They are all over ebay and I always wondered if you could swap out the motors for larger ones.

Be very very careful when boosting blowers that much - the wiring used initially is only meant for the size motor the manufacturer installed. If you step it up too much, your wiring may be insufficient and may heat up substantially due to significantly more draw. Also look at attachment points and make sure the new blowers fit tightly so there's no chance of them wiggling loose.

A booster would be a better idea, IMHO - you can make one yourself, or buy one premade and simply add it to the system.

Mike I haven't owned one but I played with one. They are extremely easy to change motors on.
Thanks Rick. I talked to you before about it. I finally have seen some pictures of the inside of the cabinet and it looks like there's plenty of room for 2 - 8.4 motors.

The Nautilus Extreme has 2 8.4" vac motors, the newest and most efficient used in portables. If you go the route of a new portbale, that would be the model I suggest. There are several version available with different PSi, with or without auto-fill and auto pump out, includiing a wand or without a wand and so forth. https://interlinksupply.com/index.php?item_num=MXE-500MAP

I think a booster is a better idea. Mytee has a good one.

Any vacuum will lose power with longer hose runs. That is simply the laws of physics. The key is how much lift / CFM do you start with and what is an acceptable level at the business end of the wand. There is no direct answer. Some situations will require more vacuum. Soe people will settle for a bit less to make the job easier.

One nice feature of the Nautilus is that you can quickly swithc from Series to parallel configuration, meaning you can get eitgher more CFM or more lift depending upon your needs for a specific situation.

An inline booster will work without needing to buy a whole new portable.
Excellent advice by Jason for you . I made mine from an old portable and it works very well . Find yourself a two vacuum motor portable on Craig's List from the 90's or early 2000 's .
Most will be series machines with very low power two stage vacuum motors that can be swapped out for much more efficient and powerful ones . This is a Prochem Cheyenne from about 2001 that I purchased at a yard sale with the wand and detail tool for $31 . Since I already have a booster this is now being stripped out and retrofitted with a different pump and better vac motors for my back up and when I have to take a machine inside a building . Hope it helps !!
All the Best, Ed
